Lea, her architect husband, Roy, and 15 year-old daughter, Cara, travel from London to the Middle East, where Roy has been hired to deal with teething problems at Dream World, a new resort complex. The thought of living in guaranteed sunshine near a beach excites them. However, the endless heat quickly becomes oppressive. Lea's attempts to find work are thwarted. Her husband is often absent, and she fears that Cara is growing distant. But at least there are fellow outsiders, misfits who don't enjoy the conformity of the ex-pat community - until one night, when the most outspoken one, Milo, is killed in a bizarre hit-and-run accident. Milo's death is only the first in a string of accidents. Lea is given a cryptic warning and starts to fear that someone is committing terrible acts of cruelty - but is there a real threat to her life or is she becoming paranoid?
